"The truth is, I love being alive. And I love feeling free. So if I can't have those things, then I feel like a caged animal, and I'd rather not be in a cage. It’s tough as a creative person to give your best when you have very little time to create, especially when your work becomes commercial and people expect you to constantly churn out your best every month.

 As a creative person, you do need time to vet your ideas, love and hate them, scrap and come up with something else. I barely had that time at Genevieve, everything was moving so fast, and I was dealing with exhaustion. I started hating everything I created and couldn’t even stand the sight of it. And for me I believe that whatever is worth doing, is worth doing well. When you reach that point where you feel you are not giving your best, you have to take a step back, take a deep breath and look inwards, at least till you can figure out yourself and put your mind back on track.

 People expect you to create magic, which isn’t possible if your mind is not at the right place. That said, I did have the opportunity to work with some amazing people at Genevieve, people I’m still very much in touch with till today, and I’m very grateful for that. I had a very understanding publisher too, even though we didn't always agree."

Hmmmm... guess we would have to keep our fingers crossed for Mr Alara's new venture..

While we wait....some recent photos of  him
